  • APC is the best way to go.
    By JSmitty - March 11, 2014 - Home Depot
    I own several apc surge protectors and back-up battery units in my residence and they are the best of any other brand. Very reliable and protect you equipment audio/television and computer components. The surge arrest I ordered (2) are really great with the USB charging port(s) for your smart phone/tablets and portable electronics including laptops. Read full review
  • Works OK for phones, but not for iPads
    By JoeM - March 25, 2014 - Home Depot
    This APC P4WUSB Surge protector plus USB charger is rated for one amp output on the specification. My iPad requires a 1amp charger. Unfortunately, this unit charges for a short time and then starts turning itself off and then back on whilst attempting to charge my ipad. On phones it works fine. The similar (but more expensive) Belkin unit is rated 1.6 amp and will charge an iPad and a phone. But if you have two ipads to charge, the 1.6 amps will not be enough for both at once.

  • Exactly what I needed
    By Fishy - May 19, 2011 - Dell
    I like the power outlets + the USB feature (where I can just plug in my phone). The only drawback is that it assumes you are using it with a standard outlet with a certain spacing between the two Ground sockets. However, I was trying to use it with a GFCI wall plate and I had to break the plastic insert on the unit in order to fit it in. But otherwise, great product! Read full review
